Sometime - late last night, it dawned on me that we were doing the last's. The last bubble bath, the last kiss good night, the last "just one more story".
The last's continued this morning...last breakfast, last time I did their hair and last car ride.
This will an ongoing essay of how the day went today.
6:45 AM - dropped off girls at my sister-in-law's house. My stinky little brother who is a terd surprised me and waited to say good by to the girls. Yep - I cried.
8:10 AM - Agency phoned and wanted to know why we weren't at our house because they are there to pick up Isabelle. My response was "At my sister-in law's where they are, every day?" Not happy with agency. I need to remember that they are not Nordstrom's and concerned about how I feel about the "experience".
8:40 AM - Wondering if we could just fast forward through today and skip right to tomorrow.
8:46 AM - Happy (is that bad/wrong) that I get to sleep in tomorrow until 5:45 and only be responsible for getting myself ready. Crap - just remembered I have to be at work early so I guess I need to wake up at 5:15 AM after all. Oh, but I get to sleep in Saturday - nope, have to drive to LA for school and then to Duane's 20 year high school reunion at Bolsa Chica Beach. Oh, Sunday when we are in Huntington Beach I can sleep in - hopefully.
9:02 AM - told by direct supervisor that I will spend September 11 at a job fair in PALM SPRINGS - YEAH!!!!! I love that city. Unfortunately, I will have to high tail it out of there as soon as it ends so I can make it to school that night. Still - it's always nice to get out of the office and get away and get away to PS - even if it's going to the convention center and not the Parker.
10:06 AM - Cell phone rang and agency said the judge has issued immediate reunification. I went to say good-bye and a little piece of my heart is broken. Duane is a mess.
12:58 PM - We are going out to dinner, Duane was cute - he just called and asked me out on a date. J - can we do retail therapy next week?
Thank you everyone for your love and support during lice-gate 2008, you all kept this foster mommy sane when she wanted to pull her hair out.
